There are few places in the world where you can find yourself engulfed in wild nature while in close vicinity to a city center. According to geographical data, Dzmuisi canyon’s cascade of waterfalls is a unique natural monument.
Dzmuisi Canyon was discovered in 2017 by Georgian climbers and National Geographic photographers. After examining the canyon, American scientists called it “one of the most unique canyon in the world.” The Lekhidari River crosses the canyon, which forms a cascade of waterfalls.
The 3.5-kilometer-long canyon begins at a 25-meter waterfall. After passing through the canyon, a cascade of waterfalls descends from the cliff. The first waterfall is 1200 meters above sea level, and the last one falls from 600 meters above sea level. The descent from the upper waterfall is wide and narrows towards the end.
It is mandatory to travel there with an experienced guide and have special equipment to traverse the downhill section. The descent takes around 4 hours and is a great adventure for extreme sports lovers.
